There’s no simpler recipe that offers such hearty praise, so plan to serve this often to small and large groups. Cutting the potatoes into thick slices will keep the ends from burning.

In terms of nutrition, black beans are rich in protein and calcium as well as fiber. We used water instead of more expensive chicken stock, because the spicy chipotle will heat up the taste as much as you want. Start with just a little; more chipotle can always be added. So, ask your friends over for a game night and know that you’re serving up a winning menu! (serves 12). Part of the Swedish Healthy Recipes collection (heart healthy, recipe, dinner).

We love salmon for its versatility—and its omega-3 contribution to our heart health. Plus with high selenium levels it’s a cancer fighter too. Note the rub relies on garlic powder, which is less likely to burn in the cooking process than fresh garlic. Cumin (the second most popular spice in the world—black pepper is first) has a distinctive and warm taste. Serves 4. Part of the Swedish Healthy Recipes collection (heart healthy, recipe, dinner).

Some days just feel like soup days, so it’s good to have a recipe that you can make without much effort.

Several Asian culinary traditions include hot and sour soups, so ingredients vary widely. One common feature, however, is red peppers or white pepper for heat, and vinegar for sour.

Definitely not your mother’s deviled eggs! An excellent source of protein, our version is much less devilish because we’ve replaced half the egg yolks with low-fat cottage cheese, and then blended it all together with a spike of hot mustard and a pinch of dill. So dig in with a “devil-may-care”attitude…they’re heavenly! Serves 8. Part of the Swedish Healthy Recipes collection (heart healthy, recipe, appetizer).
